Some of the social sciences suffer from "physics envy". This malady causes educators to inject an unnecssary amount of mathematics into the curriculum as a way of gaining scientific letgitimacy. Sadly for most undergrads, the math actually gets in the way. I wrote a paper in which I describe the use of Monte Carlo simulation as a teaching tool in finance. The proposed teaching method greatly reduces the use of scary equations that businss undergrads hate. I would be grateful for some feedback on this idea. Here is the link to my paper:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
